Designed for young toddlers aged 2 years old, our Pre-nursery classes will focus on encouraging children to explore their environment. At this age, they understand more than they can say and love to imitate others around them. With this in mind, a variety of theme-based hands-on activities will be introduced to foster language and social development. On top of that, effective learning strategies will also be utilised to support children in developing mathematical thinking, enabling them to make sense of the world.
At 3 years of age, children start to understand that their body, mind and emotions are their own. Their imaginations and language skills seem to get supercharged and start learning to build relationships. Our main objectives are for Nursery 1 children to develop their social and language skills, along with their ability to help themselves and to develop their independence. Classes will place emphasis on developing speaking and listening skills, and the exploration of numbers and shapes.
Catered for children aged 4 years old, learning at IIP will focus on introducing and building strong foundations in Phonics, Maths and Science concepts. Four year olds possess a profoundly curious mind and are capable of soaking up the world’s knowledge at incredible speeds. Ample opportunities will be provided for these young explorers to experiment on scientific ideas, explore mathematical skills & concepts, and apply phonics through storytelling sessions.
For the 5 year olds, learning is at its best when it is both structured and exploratory - structured through a clear and predictable schedule; exploratory through carefully constructed interest areas where children can initiate their own activity. Classes move between play-based activities to more structured learning activities that will broaden their basics in maths and science while encouraging creativity. Language skills will be further developed through immersive experiences in quality literature and self-expression through writing.
The IIP learning journey culminates in the final year of Kindergarten for children aged 6 years. The curriculum in this last year is designed to equip and prepare children for the challenges ahead upon graduation to ‘big school’. Classes will continue building upon the strong foundations in academic areas and cognitive development. Children will learn to become more independent in experimenting and researching, equipping them with the skills, knowledge and attitudes for a confident start in the next level of their education.
